Fashion: 84th Anglo-American conference of historians
In a major collaboration with the Victoria & Albert Museum, the IHR is taking Fashion as the theme for its annual conference in July 2015.
The history of fashion, and the role of fashion in history, is not just confined to the study of dress and costume, but encompasses design and innovation, taste and zeitgeist, treats as its subjects both people and objects, and crosses over into related disciplines such as the history of art and architecture, consumption, retailing and technology.
